Year in Review meme

Thanks to Avitable:

1. What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?

Played Dragon Age. AND many expansion packs.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

In junior high I resolved to never make any new year resolutions, and I've been successfully doing that ever since.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Not that I know of, but sometimes people forget to mention little things like that to me.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Not that I know of, but sometimes people forget to mention little things like that to me.

5. What countries did you visit?

I barely visited my own.

Health and bunnies.

Nothing in 2010 is etched in my memory.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Living to see 2011.

9. What was your biggest failure?

Improving my employment situation.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

Do I even need to answer this one? I am illness and injury incarnate.

11. What was the best thing you bought?

My futon, assuming I bought that in 2010. It allows me to lay in bed AND watch TV.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

There are other people in the world? Okay, Ebi-chan turned 30 of which I highly approve.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

Avitable didn't post regularly for a few days. I may never recover.

Doctors for the 3rd year running.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?

I don't do excitement.

16. What song will always remind you of 2010?

Nothing will remind me of 2010. It's already forgotten.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:

a) happier or sadder? Happier, since I have a fair shot at staying out of the hospitals for the first year since 2007.
b) thinner or fatter? Fatter, thanks to my diet and exercise resistant fatness-enhancing drugs.
c) richer or poorer? Richer, thanks to filing for bankruptcy.

18. What do you wish you’d done more of?

Slept. I needed it.

19. What do you wish you’d done less of?

Worked. The routine is cutting into my health.

At work, then in bed. The second part was great.

21. Did you fall in love in 2010?

Frequently. Click on the bunny tag to see with whom.

22. What was your favorite TV program?

I only watch TV via NetFlix / iTunes. My two favorite 2010 discoveries were Veronica Mars and Pushing Daisies (both now extinct). I'll go with VM as my ichi-ban fave.

I'm sane?

33. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?

I didn't meet any new people. All the ones I met had visible wear on them.

37. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010.

Life has failed to show me anything new for years.

38. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.

When it's warm it tastes real crappy
But cold beer can make me happy
When I throw up on the floor
I can go and drink some more
They say beer will make me dumb
It are go good with pizza
Now that we've all drunk some beer
Let's go drive a car


Let's go drink some BEEER!!!

Added bonus - picture of Ebi-chan:

I'm sorry for letting you down. I'll try to do better next time.

Jay said...

That Ebi-Chan chick is pretty cute. I guess.

Tracy Lynn said...

I think this is my favorite of all the New Year posts I have read, Also, fuck you, I am still TOTALLY shiny.

Anonymous said...

Yep- I have to agree. The best New Year's post I've read. And I've never been shiny.

SJ said...

Aww why did you tag me! Man I HAVE to do the meme now.

Grant said...

Avitable - my childhood innocence is ruined and can only be restored with lots of cash and butt sex.

Jay - I could probably sleep with her and her twin sister and not have to vomit later.

Tracy Lynn - your shine will never tarnish, thanks to all the seething.

PAMO - you're totally shiny even though your pets are largely made of cat.

SJ - I'm merciless like Genghis Khan that way.

Wishing you health and bunnies.. oh, and beer.

Knight said...

Somebody's yellow fever is showing! It's good for your health.

Grant said...

Maundering mutterer - beer I have. The health and bunnies continue to elude me.

Knight - who doesn't love hot Asian women?

I would steal this from you but I'd either depress the shit out of my blog visitors or they'd call the loony bin to come pick me up.
